  • Hello everyone. I am looking for a talented guitar player for an acoustic band that currently consists of a female vocalist, bass player and a drummer.
    The goal is to be rehearsing weekly and gigging at least monthly, maybe even becoming a house band somewhere.
    Our ideal setlist would speak to many types of people. We are taking a 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, to very current song choice approach. We want to take any great song and put an acoustic twist on it. This band will be mostly covers.
    I have many years of performing experience. I trained in theatre but have spent the last decade singing in jam and rock bands, most recently Dirty Little Secret for the past 7 years (dirtylittlesecretband.com). I hope to play with a very talented guitar player who can make a song their own, transpose and who does’t mind putting work into a professional sounding set.
    We are all mature (late 30's/early 40's), family type people and would appreciate a drama free, easy-going personality to join us.
    If this sounds like something you can be passionate about, email me at

  • Seeking keyboardist with backing vocal. Singer/songwriter (lead/rhythm/slide guitar and harp) bassist, drummer re-launching original blues/rock band. Previous tunes have aired on MuchMusic, YTV, CBC, with 8 weeks heavy rotation on MusiquePlus and in FM radio contests. As well-received as those songs were, they have been replaced by newer, radio-friendlier material, 12 of which have been recorded and mastered. Focus is on festival/concert and exposure gigs. Rehearsal room with PA in south Ottawa. Rehearsal schedule to be determined.
